Theme and Variations.
I actually wanted to present works from a new series today. It’s quite promising work for me, but then I thought maybe it seems too crude. I think its appeal is only revealed upon closer inspection. Or not – what do I know.
Instead, I’ll show a few studies related to a topic I’ve already presented. Actually 2 times. Once about my work with leaves in general, and once on the subject of “poetry from the sky“.
As soon as I leave the house, I’m in a small meadow that I like quite a lot for some reason. It certainly has something to do with the fact that there is a Ginkgo tree there. In early autumn I enjoy the view through the treetops and when the sun shines it flickers golden.
In late autumn the gold lies in the meadow. And then death gently breathes on them.
And in winter, a few leaves in that meadow always manage to peep through the light snow cover. It’s like when you look through a curtain into the winter day – only the other way around.
There’s a very lyrical aspect to the whole thing, and that’s probably what prompted me at one point to combine the leaves with a calligraphed Chinese poem.
I have already varied the summer and autumn variants bevore. The winter collection looks like this:
While one anticipates the coming winter, the other peers to see if spring is finally approaching.
Maybe I will dedicate one or the other picture or one or the other contribution to someone. Why? Just to thank someone in my humble way. So I would like to start today and dedicate the post to Edith Hornauer. Do I know you? No. Why then?
I stumbled across one of her poems by accident and really enjoyed it. Comment from me, warm feedback from her, we all know that. But there is something stunning about her warmth. In general, I can’t deal with that kind of warmth, but reading such a friendly line in the morning makes the day. And that’s a lot.
